In Which I Go Pre-Order CRAZY!!!!


So this week I have gone pre-order ceraaaaaayzee!!  I haven't actually done this for a long time but so many good books keep popping up on my radar and I need them in my life now - or in 6 months time or in 12 months in the case of one of them.

Anyway I thought I would share them with you, some of them may already be out in your part of the world but they aren't in mine or I have chosen to wait on the paperback, these are all from Amazon.co.uk!

Release dates as usual will no doubt, change, a couple have already changed since I ordered them!

Let me know if you are excited for any of these or if there are any I should be adding to my list!


Title: RIDERS
Author: VERONICA ROSSI
Publisher: TOR
Release Date: 16th FEBRUARY 2016

For eighteen-year-old Gideon Blake, nothing but death can keep him from achieving his goal of becoming a U.S. Army Ranger. As it turns out, it does.

Recovering from the accident that most definitely killed him, Gideon finds himself with strange new powers and a bizarre cuff he can’t remove. His death has brought to life his real destiny. He has become War, one of the legendary four horsemen of the apocalypse.

Over the coming weeks, he and the other horsemen—Conquest, Famine and Death—are brought together by a beautiful but frustratingly secretive girl to help save humanity from an ancient evil on the emergence.
They fail.

Now—bound, bloodied, and drugged—Gideon is interrogated by the authorities about his role in a battle that has become an international incident. If he stands any chance of saving his friends and the girl he’s fallen for—not to mention all of humankind—he needs to convince the skeptical government officials the world is in imminent danger.

But will anyone believe him?

Title: STARFLIGHT
Author: MELISSA LANDERS
Publisher: DISNEY-HYPERION
Release Date: 2nd FEBRUARY 2016


Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. 

Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. 

She's so desperate to reach the realm that she's willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he's been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. 

Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world--and each other--the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe...




Title: SNOW LIKES ASHES
Author: SARA RAASCH
Publisher: BALZER & BRAY / HARPER TEEN
Release Date: 22nd OCTOBER 2015

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. 

Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

Title: ICE LIKE FIRE
Author: SARA RAASCH
Publisher: BALZER & BRAY / HARPER TEEN
Release Date: 4th NOVEMBER 2015

It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell.


Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. 

Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves?


Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats?

As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world




Title: MISS MAYHEM
Author: RACHEL HAWKINS
Publisher: SPEAK
Release Date: MARCH 2016

Life is almost back to normal for Harper Price. 

The Ephors have been silent after their deadly attack at Cotillion months ago, and her best friend, Bee, has returned after a mysterious disappearance. 

Now Harper can focus on the important things in life: school, canoodling with David (her nemesis-turned-ward-slash-boyfie), and even competing in the Miss Pine Grove pageant.

Unfortunately, supernatural chores are never done. The Ephors have decided they’d rather train David than kill him. 

The catch: Harper has to come along for the ride, but she can’t stay David’s Paladin unless she undergoes an ancient trial that will either kill her . . . or make her more powerful than ever.

Author: DANIEL O'MALLEY
Publisher: HEAD OF ZEUS

In this spirited sequel, The Rook returns to clinch an alliance between deadly rivals and avert epic—and slimy—supernatural war.

When secret organizations are forced to merge after years of enmity and bloodshed, only one person has the fearsome powers—and the bureaucratic finesse—to get the job done. Facing her greatest challenge yet, Rook Myfanwy Thomas must broker a deal between two bitter adversaries:

The Checquy—the centuries-old covert British organization that protects society from supernatural 
threats, and… 
The Grafters—a centuries-old supernatural threat. 


But as bizarre attacks sweep London, threatening to sabotage negotiations, old hatreds flare. Surrounded by spies, only the Rook and two women, who absolutely hate each other, can seek out the culprits before they trigger a devastating otherworldly war.

We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came.

But an anonymous tip about an FBI mole in the organisation drives a wedge between the happy couple and all hell breaks loose in a hail of bullets.

Til death do us part.We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came.

Title: ILLUMINAE
Author: AMIE KAUFMAN & JAY KRISTOFF
Publisher: ONEWORLD
Release Date: 22nd OCTOBER 2015

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.


This afternoon, her planet was invaded.



The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.


But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again.

  1. I sometimes go pre-order crazy as well, but I only share which books I received when I actually receive them and not when i buy them so it isn't as obvious I went on a pre-order binge ;). I like pre-orderign books in advance so I won't have to remember to buy it and it will arrive once it's released. I also like how you pay beforehand and by the time the book it arrives it almost feels like it's free. Does that make sense?
    I hope you'll enjoy all of these books once they arrive! I like the covers for Snow Like Ashes and Ice Like Fire, so pretty!

  3. I'm actually not someone who preorders like ever - I only have ever preordered two books which actually were the final ones in series. But you have a lot of books which are shaping up to be really well known - Illuminae and Riders especially. I hope they are all you hope they will be!
